Methyl Ketones

Methyl ketones are one of the natural chemicals currently produced from fossil sources through the oxidation process and bioconversion of plant product. Medium chain methyl ketones are precursors to many societally important compounds such as for the flavor-and-fragrance industry, ingredients of insect repellent formulations (2-undecanone and 2-tridecanone) and pharmaceutical compounds. Additional applications of methyl ketones include soaps, cosmetics and providing scents in essential oils and flavoring in cheese and other dairy products. These markets together account for >10 MMTPA of methyl ketones demand.
